My ADS construction
After being inspired by this thread Don’t Measure it, Weigh it. I thought of getting an ADS. However, I had to question the circular ADS and say is there something better? Well I don’t know but it is cheap as hell.
So by next morning I had devised a plan. I was going to make an ADS using fishing weights and a malleable wire. This is what you will need:
-with holes through centre
-oval looked the most comfortable
-purchased 6x1 oz weights, non lead (larger/lead could work)
Total Cost = $4.50 Canadian
- weight’s hole was to small for regular metal coat hanger
- I cut open wire used for in homes to get copper wire
- copper being more malleable maybe better than coat hangers
- or something else to stop weights from spinning
-to bend, pull, and hold wire
1.Cut wire to desired length, after several attempts I would suggest cutting more than you think you will need
2.If wire has coating take off, unless it fits in the weight
3.Add as many weights that will be needed to form a U or a circle around your shaft
4.Tape weights securely to wire
5.Cut ends of wire to desired length
Use as you will.
So far I have left near 1 cm ( .4-5 of an inch or so) of wire sticking our of the ends and have been wearing it for several hours in such a fashion. They rub the legs every so often, so I would suggest taping them back, cutting them off and taping end, or leaving them on and bending them into hooks in order to lock them in place.
Has anyone else made one like this?
If so, how was it for you?
